This year we celebrated mom's birthday for 3 days!!!
Day 1 - Saturday - VA State Open competition which was amazing with very high level couples competing and fabulous Max Kozhevnikov and Beata doing the show. My favorites were the Mirage (Rumba), the Gypsy (Paso) and Chaplin (Samba). It is hard to believe that human bodies are capable to move with such speed and precision. Their artistry is quite amazing as well. Well, for those of you who missed the show - put it on a must do list next year. (In addition to my Race for Hope :-)) If you want to see some pictures - you can do so at my friend's blog: elizabethrichardson.blog (I just had to borrow this Rumba picture from her site)
Day 2 - surprise party with mom's friends. Thank you all who joined us on my short notice to wish mom Happy Birthday. You made the party! Unfortunately I forgot battery for my camera so pictures are from the phone. Mom's expression when she saw everyone there said it all great!!! She keeps talking about who much she was surprised and happy.
Day 3 - winding down - just a dessert at my friend's (Alexander Arman) new restaurant in Rockville, but Teramisu was quite wonderful. This place - Fortuna Grille has great food, excellent service and now live music on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. I hope you will check it out. Mom got totally drunk hi-hi-hi and acted silly. Overall, very, very nice weekend she truly enjoyed. Well.....back regular schedule now.
